i'm recovering from some whiplash...sigh.
coach will usually have us skate laps and yell out instructions like "stop out of bounds," "run in on your toe-stops," "backwards" etc. and the whole time, he'll be zipping around on his inlines (he's a former national champion speedskater and has a cycling team and a speed-skating team) and he'll bump you and dodge around you and try to get you to block him, hit him, whatever. he went to dodge between me and another girl and he used his arm for leverage to push me backwards. i ended up landing hard on my left hip and shoulder and bouncing my head off the floor. he apologized, but he's so full of penalties when he skates with us. so i have missed the last 2 nights of practice and i'm losing my mind.
I hope both you and Wrangler get better soon. Sounds like you guys are having some derby crunch time right now.
